The time will soon come for Van Halen to reach in to their bag of tricks and choose another gem from A Different Kind Of Truth that will become the album’s third single. First there was was “Tattoo”, then “She’s The Woman.” That still leaves 11 songs left to pick from.
But which song should they choose?
Two months ago, the Van Halen News Desk conducted a poll where we asked our readers what their favorite songs are from the album. Over 50,000 votes later, the answer’s clear… they liked everything! (Even the least favorite songs had around a couple thousand votes each!) But the top song remains “Stay Frosty” with over 7,000 votes.
There have been a couple clues that “Frosty” could be the next single. Exibit A, this online ad for Van Halen’s show last week in Denver Colorado. Exhibit B, a “Stay Frosty” promo disc mailed to radio stations.
Personally, we’d be thrilled with any of the top 5:
1) Stay Frosty (7,270 votes)
2) She’s The Woman (6,326 votes) (Check!)
3) Blood And Fire (6,012 votes)
4) You And Your Blues (4,929 votes)
5) As Is (4,757 votes)
Hell, this album is so good, we’d love it if they released ALL the songs as singles! People need to hear this stuff!
We will say that we did indeed hear that the Van Halen camp is considering releasing it as the third single (and video!).
